Investigators now know the cause of a fire earlier this month that destroyed the Morgan County Courthouse in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.
They say an electrical short sparked the August 8 fire.
The state fire marshal's office says the fire started in the dropped ceiling of the second-floor courtroom and spread throughout the courthouse.
A spokeswoman with the office says the wiring was original to the building, which was built in 1908.
A number of other county offices, including those of the sheriff and assessor, were damaged as well.
County government is now operating out of temporary offices.
